Cleaning Abbio: Nonstick

The ease of Abbio non-stick really comes through when it's time to clean. After all, the feature is in the name. Abbio non-stick will be the easiest pan you've ever cleaned. 

General Cleaning

Let your cookware cool to room temperature. Running cold water over a hot pan can cause it to warp over time.

After the pan has cooled, wash it with warm water, soap, and gentle brush or sponge. Definitely avoid using abrasive scrubbers like metal scouring pads or steel wool, as they will ruin you non-stick surface. Also avoid putting your Abbio non-stick in the dishwasher if you can. While Abbio is dishwasher safe, you'll get more longevity out of the coating by not exposing it to the harsh detergents in your dishwasher. 

Dry the cookware with clean cloth so you don’t end up with water stains. You’re all done.

 

The outside of my Abbio has lost its new-cookware shine

Lightly wet the outside your cookware. Then sprinkle the surface with a bleach-free cleaner like Bar Keepers Friend or just baking soda from your cabinet. Rub the paste into the cookware with a sponge or nylon scrubbing pad. Rinse with soap water and dry with a clean cloth. 

My Abbio is a little less non-sticky than when I bough it

Even with perfect care, non-stick cookware will slowly loose its non-stick properties over long periods of time. When you've used your non-stick cookware hundreds of times and eggs are not sliding around like they used it, there's still hope. It turns out you can season your non-stick cookware and bring back some of the slippery-ness.

Start by rubbing a small amount of oil into the surface. You want to use a high temperature oil for this like canola oil. Stay away from olive oil for this process. Next, put your Abbio in the oven at 350 degrees for an hour. Pull it out of the over and let it come back to room temperature. Gently rinse the pan with water only and wipe it dry with a paper towel. Next time you cook with your Abbio non-stick you'll notice the difference. You can make this seasoning last longer by avoiding soap when you rinse out your non-stick pans. But you can also repeat this process as often as needed.
